Why is it that the night before you have to get up super early it always seems particularly difficult to get to sleep? And last night I had trouble staying asleep too. Not funny, whoever's fault it is! I'm specifically looking at you, $deity!

Anyway, I'm off to London today (have to be on a train in less than 50 minutes to be there on time) to my edexcel moderation day (yes, I'm marking for them again this year!), after which, assuming I'm not dead, I'm hopping over East London way to see [livejournal.com profile] kimble and [livejournal.com profile] barakta. I know I'm an old hand at this, as I remembered to ask for a receipt when buying my train tickets so I can fill in and submit the expenses claim there and then. *Awards gold star to self for being organised like that*

It should all be quite nice, assuming I can stay awake :)

Have a nice day everyone :)

Having *finally* got an ADSL connection (albeit a very flaky one) at 6mc I have uploaded all the pictures that were waiting :)

Ph33r :P

You remember the story of me getting in contact with an old friend? Well the 29th May was her birthday so I toodled along to her house for the party. I had a lovely time, especially making use of the trampoline :P Piccies of that event (including me on the trampoline here.

My last shift with the children was on Friday morning and I got some of the most fun and beautiful presents I could ever have wished for. I got a bear and a thing full of hot chocolate and a game for two to play in the bath >:) The cards and letters were the worst though. I didn't cry when I was there but I came back home and *howled* about it all. PIctures of almost everything (including becky's letter which is by far the worst) are here.

My results were posted on the boards at the back of the library at 5pm on Friday. I swore I would not be involved in the scrum that ensues once the humanities guy turns up with the lists, but after a little encouragement from ben, there I was, right in the middle. I went back yesterday to preserve the result for posterity ;) I'm glad I won't have to do *that* wait ever again!

Samphire Hoe is where Ben and I went after I got my degree results. I was so full of nervous energy the walk did me good. It was really beautiful though Ben suffered because of the high concentration of pollen there. Well worth a visit. For more info see this.

Finally, yesterday I got round to setting up aragorn despite the lack of desk... Aragorn's new home is perched on top of two Dell boxes and another computer - see this picture for how unstable the whole arrangement actually looks ;)

Ok - all piccies done now - have a look, especially at the Samphire Hoe ones :)

*bumbles off*

Edit: I forgot to mention the lovely rainbow I saw a few days ago :) Go look! :D

I know most of you know already, but I'll post here anyway :)

I got a 2:1, which is what I wanted, so yay!

Scarily there was only one first in history and no thirds or passes - so we're all pretty average really ;)

For those of you who don't know the UK's way of classifying degrees at undergrad level:

A first is the best anyone can get
A 2:1 is next
followed by a 2:2
and a third
with a pass last. With a pass you don't get an honours degree if you're doing one.

After this comes fail :( *huggles pete* (what can I say - that result really threw me - it's left a kinda bitter-sweet thing hanging over yesterday. *more hugs*)

So anyway, I'm now Elizabeth Overal B.A. (hons)

\o/

I wish it wasn't over :(

After my exam today ben met me at the small hall as a surprise. He brought with him a card ), enclosed in which was a pair of tickets to see Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat at the Marlowe tonight. ) He also proposed a meal at Ask in Canterbury before to which I happily agreed. I got dolled up and out we went. We had a lovely dinner and really took our time over eating. Got to the theatre about 20 mins before the performance and ben wandered over to the huge image of a face which acts as an "interesting" sculpture outside said theatre. I wittered on about things not very important and wandered about a bit with my back to him. Then I heard Ben say my name and I turned round, and there he was, on one knee with a jewellery box. He opened it and displayed my proper engagement ring in all its full glory. The ring was made by Ben's dad and only just finished this week.

It was well worth the wait :D

As for Joseph? It was good, but the ring was better ;)


My Engagement Ring


please note, keyboard only used to steady ring while good pictures were taken using both hands, keyboard is *not* reflective of my geekiness :P


All pics of today and the ring here and here.

This time tomorrow I will have finished and will be a graduand like those fine MTD peoples ;)

I'm really nervous.

One this afternoon, one tomorrow morning and then that's it.

It seems like a giant anti-climax :|

More later I guess...
